Bill Monroe – Tennessee Blues lyrics

Tennessee Blues - Bill Monroe
(Album: Mule Skinner Blues; Monroe)

If I had my way I'd leave here today
I'd leave in a hurry
I'd find me a place where I could stay
And not have to worry

A place I could use
A place I could lose the Tennessee Blues

I'd find me a spot on some mountain top
With no one around me
Valleys and streams, birds in the trees
And hills that surround me.

I'd try to forget all my regrets
I'd keep just the good times
I'd wake and I'd sleep, nothing but peace
Feel free all the time.
